First Lady

A Message from First Lady Lynnette Sullivan

Hello to my fellow Anchorage neighbors! I have enjoyed meeting many of you while serving as First Lady. For those of you that I have yet to meet (!), here is a bit of information about me.

I was born and raised in Kailua, Oahu, Hawaii. I attended neighborhood schools in Kailua and then college at the University of Hawaii. My mother was Chinese and my father was English, Dutch, Irish, Scottish and German. I am a product of the melting pot of Hawaii!

After graduating from college*, I moved to Alaska in 1974 to fly for Wien Air Alaska. I flew throughout the state of Alaska and also to the lower 48. I loved meeting people from all over our state. My 35+ years living in Anchorage have been wonderful. After flying for Wien Airlines I worked in corporate sales for 3M Company’s local Anchorage branch. Then when Jennifer was born I decided to return to college at the University of Alaska to get my teaching degree.

I have been teaching here in the Anchorage School District the past 19 years. I love teaching and watching children grow and learn. In 2008 I was honored as a BP Teacher of Excellence.

Dan and I were married in 1985. We met playing tennis at the Teamsters Recreation Center. Our daughter Jennifer was born the next year. She graduated from the University of Oregon Robert Clark Honors College. Both she and Dan are “Ducks”! We are very proud of her.

We love living here in Anchorage amongst family and friends. Please be sure to join us in our Anchorage community events and activities! We’ll see you there!

As a teacher I know that pictures are worth a thousand words. Below is a link to photo albums sharing some of the fun events that involve our Anchorage friends and neighbors. Enjoy!

Warm regards,
Lynnette Sullivan
